    I enojoyed this event as a startup/beermat entrepreneur. I got to see that you don't have to have your plan laid out to perfection (analyses paralyses), get an idea what it is like to get investors on board and see how you can pitch your proposition in three minutes. I would like to follow a workshop on how to get started from beermat stage to pitching stage, where perhaps other women who have the hands-on experience can lead these sessions. Thanks for organising this Simone!

    It was very interesting in inspirational to see how other female entrepreneurs were pitching their business and how creative and driven they are to get their business to a higher level. The feedback from the investors was critical but good and lots of thing being said are definitively very useful for my own business ideas. Nice woman attending this meet up and a perfect organization. I enjoyed it!
